Nipsey Hussle’s surviving girlfriend and mother of his child, Lauren London, has made rare public pronouncements since her beloved soulmate passed away nearly two months ago.

As she continues to mourn the transcendent artist who was born Ermias Asghedom, London also occasionally pays homage to the businessman, philanthropist and civic leader that was her boyfriend.

In her most recent post to her 8M Instagram followers, the star of ATL and BET’s “Games People Play” called her man what many already feel about the man:

IG was also the medium London chose to express her rawest of feelings in the aftermath of Nipsey’s murder on March 31, 2019, in front of his famous Marathon Clothing store in South Los Angeles:

A few weeks later, London chose to honor her man with a permanent reminder and posted it on IG:

And who can forget the powerful and poignant tribute London gave Nip at his massive homegoing celebration at the Staples Center in downtown L.A.?
